Monday’s Becoming Mindful for Teens

Mar 01, 2016 07:40AM

The Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation is offering free sessions on the practice of mindfulness for teens. There is a separate girls and boys group that meets one Monday a month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the CKG Foundation offices. The girls’ sessions are March 7, April 4, May 2 and June 6. Boys meet March 21, April 18, May 16 and June 6. The final session is coed.

Led by certified mindfulness coach, Alex Peavey, the goal is to provide participants with tools that help with handling stress by enabling students to tune in better to their surroundings, whether it is on the field, in the classroom or in a social setting.

CKG Foundation seeks to build awareness, provide education and offer help for those battling teenage depression. The group was founded to honor the legacy of Cameron Gallagher, who died moments after crossing the finish line of the 2014 Shamrock Half Marathon, in Virginia Beach. Cameron suffered with these challenges and wanted to help those that suffer.
